To what end? He is sending from his IP address only to the Comcast SMTP message submission server. Comcast is only going to be concerned with whether he is an authenticated Comcast user, and acting within the limitations of the Comcast Terms of Use. Message submission servers shouldn't care about that Senderbase data.

senderbase also gives a "score" about how much spam has been received from the particular IP. It more importantly will list if he is one of the large blacklists for whatever reason.

What does his IP address have to do with anything?!?!? He is sending through 'smtp.comcast.net'. The only thing which a gateway mail server should concern itself with is the IP address of 'smtp.comcast.net'. The Comcast user's IP address is not a part of the equation.

Look; just because I am running an MTA, doesn't meant my ISP IP address is connecting to gateway mail servers when I send out email. Neither his Comcast connection, nor my AT&T connection are a part of the equation! When we send through our respective ISP SMTP message submission servers, our IP addresses should be treated no different than any other users IP address while going through those servers.
